Thursday at 3pm is the Major League Baseball trade deadline. This is the opportunity for all MLB teams that are in contention or teams that their season is pretty much over to be either buyers or sellers.
The Brewers are in first place in the NL-Central and are more likely to be buyers. In the last 11 years under general manager Doug Melvin the Brewers have made a trade in nine of them. Anything that can help boost the team whether it is a starting pitcher, bullpen help, another infielder or outfield all signs point to the Brewers making a strong push.
It has been rumored that the Brewers are inter tested in big names like Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester or Rays pitcher David Price. Milwaukee just got their look at Price when they beat him 5-0 Wednesday. It will cost the team a lot in return to pull off a deal for either player. If a starting pitcher is traded for, then you will possibly see the Brewers trade away top pitching prospect in Jimmy Nelson.
Other potential names include starting pitchers: John Lackey Red Sox, Ian Kennedy SD, A.J. Burnett PHI and Jorge De La Rosa COL Infielders: 1B Justin Morneau COL, 1B Billy Butler KC, 3B Casey McGehee,
